The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) is leading an initiative to standardize language used across organizations in the area of women's health care and is seeking feedback from interested stakeholders in an online Public Comment forum, April 2 to June 4.
The reVITALize Gynecology Data Definitions Initiative is the result of collaborative efforts of more than 60 leaders in women's health care who convened at a December 2013 reVITALize Gynecology National Stakeholder Conference. The initiative seeks to standardize gynecology data definitions for performance measurement, registries, observational research, and electronic health records.
Currently, more than 100 proposed data element definitions across 6 separate categories are available for review. To learn more about the initiative or provide feedback on proposed definitions, go online.
